    Don't run out of gas, you'll have a sucky time getting back to shore.

    better advice than that is to NOT FORGET TO PUT THE PLUG IN! if you dont it will suck more than running out of gas. :0a26:

    I don't like running out of gas or forgetting the plug.I would say it's worse to run out of gas though.I've done both.With the plug you remember when your feet start getting wet,I can turn on the bilge and get it up on a plane and suck the water out.When you run outta gas your just kind of helpless out there.

    Learned this yesterday. Pull the plug (at home) if it is raining and below freezing. I did get it out but it took 2 hours for my hand to turn back a nice flesh color after breaking the ice and pulling the plug.:eek:
